Club Abyss, in Sayreville, New Jersey.
Vehicles arrived from all over the east coast from Virginia to Toronto
Canada just to be able to compete and enjoy the scene like never before. If
you value quality luxury cars, this was the place to be. Next year, we
want to see you all out here. Be on the look out for the date and location

FIRST DRIVE! 2015 Lexus RC F
After a 15 year absence from having a coupe in their lineup, Lexus launches
the 2015 RC F, High-Performance Sport Coupe, to rival the BMW M4, Audi RS5
and Mercedes-Benz C63. With 467 horsepower, this V8-powered
track-ready car is poised and ready to make an impact.

The GS used to be the only hybrid game in town, but times have changed and
nearly everyone has joined the party. BMW has their turbocharged ActiveHybrid 5, Mercedes just
launched the E400 Hybrid, Infiniti has re-badged their M Hybrid the Q70
Hybrid, Acura is finally selling the all-wheel-drive RLX Hybrid and Audi
has announced the A6 hybrid will come to America "soon." This means that
the S80 T6 and Genesis are no longer on my list because we have
head-to-head competition now.
Lexus used to be known for restrained styling but the current generation GS
marked a change for the Japanese luxury brand. In addition to taking on
more aggressive front end styling, the GS was the first Lexus to wear the
new "spindle" grille. The schnozz that seemed so controversial three years
ago seems downright demure today, especially since this form has been
adapted to the enormous (and some say questionable) LX 470. Perhaps because
the GS was the first to wear the corporate grille, the styling seems
slightly awkward from the front 3/4 shot (seen at the top) but looks better
in person. Unlike the IS, which gets some sheetmetal swooshes on the side,
the GS's profile and rump are luxury car restrained. Overall I think the
Infiniti Q70 hybrid, despite being a little long in the tooth, still wins
the beauty contest. The Lexus and BMW are a bit too sedate for my tastes,
and the RLX and A6 suffer from decidedly front-wheel-drive proportions when
compared to the rest and the Mercedes lands smack in the middle.
While the GS 350 recently got an update in the form of a new Aisin 8-speed
automatic, the GS 450h continues with just a minor software update. This
means under the hood you will find the same direct-injection 3.5L
Atkinson-cycle V6 engine and RWD hybrid transmission that launched in 2011.
Combined with a 1.9 kWh NiMH battery pack in the trunk the system is good
for 338 combined horsepower, 286 of which
come from the gasoline engine. This is essentially the same engine found in
the Highlander and RX hybrids, but the transmission is more similar to what
Lexus uses in the LS 600hL. The unit combines the two motor/generator units
with a 2-speed planetary gearset to improve efficiency at high speeds (as
in on the Autobahn) but without the AWD system standard in the LS 600hL.
The 2014 software update improves "sportiness" in sport mode and now
imitates an 8-speed automatic instead of a 6-speed. While 338 horsepower compares well
with the 6-cylinder competition, the GS 450h has the unenviable task of
trying to be both the most efficient GS and the performance version as
well. For reasons nobody knows, the more efficient GS 300h which uses a
2.5L four-cylinder engine is not sold in America.
By design, the Lexus hybrid system is very different from the competition.
The two motor/generator units and the electrical circuitry combine with a
single planetary gearsest to "act" as a continuously variable transmission.
This setup allows the drivetrain to act as a serial hybrid (kind of),
parallel hybrid, electric generator, or a pure EV at low speeds. In
contrast Mercedes, BMW and Infiniti combine a traditional transmission with
a single electric motor that replaces the torque converter. Transitions
between electric and gasoline drive modes in these systems aren't as smooth
as the Lexus system because of the clutch packs involved in reconnecting
the engine. Meanwhile Acura combines a dual-clutch robotic manual
transmission with a twin-motor pack in the rear for the only AWD hybrid
luxury sedan in this category.
Of course the primary reason for buying a hybrid is to save on gas. Right?
Maybe. With a 29 MPG City, 34 MPG Highway and 31 MPG combined rating
there's no doubt that the GS 450h is a fuel sipping 338 horsepower luxury sedan.
However at more than $10,000 more expensive than a similarly equipped GS
350 it would take you more than 20 years to "save money." We did average an
excellent 31.5 MPG over 800 miles with the GS hybrid, a notable improvement
over the Infiniti hybrid and the short time I spent in the RLX hybrid.
Although we haven't extensively tested the BMW and Mercedes hybrids yet,
brief spins in both indicate they will slot in under the GS. There's one
more problem for the GS: Mercedes' new E250 diesel. No, it's not a speed
daemon, but at 34 mpg combined it not only makes up for the higher cost of
diesel with the higher fuel economy, it starts around $9,000 less than a GS
450h as well.

Crazy Insane VIP car in Japan 夢びっぷ車！
Camber and dish combo that needs to be see to be believed. This VIP cruiser
scraped and sparked its way more than 150 kilometers back to Tokyo on 4
wheels of rubber no thicker than motorbike tyres. I still have no idea how
it was set up to be drivable like this. Insane comes to mind.

In this video I give a full in depth tour of a 2001 Lexus GS300. I take
viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while
showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues
to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start
it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of
this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the
